The McCourys Announce 2017 Fall and Winter Tour


This fall and winter, music fans will have a chance to experience numerous incarnations of the music of Del McCoury and family, the renowned and revered bluegrass master, as he launches his most extensive tour in more than 15 years. The 35-date run will feature a different configuration of the McCoury family each night and includes dates billed as The Del McCoury Band and Del and Dawg, plus shows by The Travelin’ McCourys, which includes sons Ronnie and Rob McCoury. For a string of dates starting on November 26and running until December 9, fans will be treated to “Del: Get On The Bus” shows featuring Del in intimate rock clubs across the West Coast and Colorado. Tickets for those shows are on sale now. A full list of dates can be found below.

“There’s so many great places to play and hear music, I just can’t stop,” the Grammy Award winning McCoury said of his passion for the road and namesake festival, DelFest. “I always love hearing other people play, even if I don’t see myself playing their type of music, I never walk away without having learned something new.”

Del McCoury’s quest for new sounds is what drives him to seek out and showcase up-and-coming musicians, especially at DelFest. Over the years, Del has helped give start to young bands including Old Crow Medicine Show and Trampled by Turtles while collaborating and touring with musicians ranging from David Grisman (on the Del and Dawg tour), Sam BushThe Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Steve Earle. McCoury has also expanded his repertoire through working with the award-winning members of his band who also tour for their own loyal fan base as The Travelin’ McCourys. Fans can catch The Travelin’ McCourys on select dates this October on The Grateful Ball tour, dates paying allegiance to the music of The Grateful Dead and feature one of their most recent collaborations with The Jeff Austin Band.

As fans know, McCoury’s friends and collaborators range from country music hall of famerVince Gill to rock influencer Dan Auerbach to jam band heavies Trey Anastasio and Jon Fishman of Phish, as well as country star Dierks Bentley, and the late Jerry Garcia. But you don’t need to dig deep into history to find McCoury’s legions of fans that continue to grow as he reinvents his music never veering too far from the classic style he developed while playing with Bill Monroe. McCoury’s versatility was well showcased at the most recent DelFest which featured musicians including Fishman, The Trey Anastasio Band, Gov’t Mule, Bela Fleck and Chris Thile, Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives, and many others.

Don’t miss this chance to see Del McCoury and the The Travelin’ McCourys at venues near you.
